    How much do you charge as a freelance consultant, vs a normal annual salary?
    On average, percentage-wise?

    Say you made 70k as a full-time employee... how much do you charge the next
    company who wants to hire you as a freelance consultant? Note that this
    company has no health benefits for its own full-time employees, though most
    of them are full-time.

    Yes...that should give you enough to buy your own benefits, if it's

    How much work are they going to give you?
    2 hours a week, charge them 100$ an hour.
    40 hours a week...subtract the insurance you will have to get on your own
    and other benefits..vac, sick, 401k match, etc... from your current pay.
    Now you will have a hard number to stare at.

    Then try to find out how much money they will get from your work per hour.
